Corpo/Ilicito: The Post-Human Society 6.9 at counter pulse in SF.
We had the opportunity to see the performance by Guillermo Gomez Peña and Violeta Luna and others from la Pochanostra. It was pretty brutal, I had a worry that Luna would hurt herself, she was extreme, from beginning to end she evoked feelings of those who suffer in the face of this neo-colonial monster we live with. On the other side Gomez-Pena posed with audience members pointing a rifle at him, in a different position every time. One thing I loved was Gomez-Pena’s poetry, he is a great writer and has a way with words that makes him super brilliant. Here is a short video of the performance.
